Storyline Heading
The Bourne Legacy is exactly that, the legacy, the aftermath, of what's come before. Bourne's public exposure at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum sparks a bonfire that threatens to burn down decades of research and development into the building of better spies and warriors. Audiences will discover that there are actually a variety of intelligence programs, that the CIA's Treadstone was but one of the early developments and that Bourne's actions are creating a tremendous anxiety that other programs may be exposed.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller - While a sequel to the popular Jason Bourne spy action series, this film features neither the character nor series star Matt Damon. This film focuses on a new character played by Jeremy Renner, whose fans will have plenty to enjoy here. Returning series supporting players such as Joan Allen and Albert Finney have very miniscule roles this time, with recognizable faces Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton taking on new supporting roles. This film is fairly talky before a long closing action sequence, and the violence may be too intense for young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average 'The Bourne Legacy' is always gripping in the moment. The problem is in getting the moments to add up.

USA Today Full Review
Good It's not the same ultra-high-caliber espionage thriller without Matt Damon sprinting around the globe or masterful director Paul Greengrass in charge, but The Bourne Legacy is a brisk and challenging film.

Washington Post Full Review
Good With 'The Bourne Legacy,' Gilroy has brought characteristic taste and skill to a nearly impossible task: embracing the past without completely erasing it, thereby creating an invitingly complicated and open-ended future.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 102 moviegoers:
TEENS:Two males loved "The Bourne Legacy," one enjoyed it very much and one rated it as an average movie. One female loved it and the other three enjoyed it very much, but didn't quite love it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great reviews from the males and almost great reviews from the females. All but one enjoyed it very much with several loving it.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are nearly identical. Over a third loved "The Bourne Legacy." Another third rated it above average, which indicates they enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, the remaining third were slightly disappointed since they only rated it as an average movie. Overall these are very good, but not quite great, reviews.
